Political Kindness

"Political Kindness"
Does such a thing exist?!?
There has been a lot going on lately in American government. 
While I do not like to get into politics on my blog and keep my views to myself, there is one thing I feel the need to talk about...
No matter what your view or what party you represent PLEASE be respectful and kind when openly discussing your views and opinions on social media outlets. 
Don't get me wrong, I am all for standing up for what you believe in!! I am very vocal about it in other media outlets (Just not my blog). But the bashing, name calling, bullying, hurtful comments that I have heard from BOTH political parties makes me sad. BOTH sides can be quite ignorant and rude in there arguments in the government and in social media. 
When did it become wrong to have an opinion? When did it become a bad thing to disagree and discuss differences of opinions?  Can we not be willing to listen to what others have to say, and then if in disagreement, KINDLY explain your viewpoint and why you have that viewpoint? 
I guess all I am asking is that we show a little kindness, and respect (regardless if we agree with the person), to those who have different ideas. 
Don't give you opinion if you are unwilling to listen to other viewpoints.

Alright, that is all the "politics" I am going to talk about on here! :)
I will end with this lovely quote, that I think is so true! 
Imagine if everyone took this quote to heart...there would be a lot less angry people in the world!!
